Violence in Border City Continues to Rise

USA Today reports that a police officer, whose photograph appeared in a USA TODAY and report May 18 about the surging violence against police in the Mexican border city of Nuevo Laredo, was in critical condition Tuesday after he was shot five times outside his home.

This happened as Juan Pablo Elizondo had just completed guard duty at a hospital in Nuevo Laredo. This was where some of his colleagues were being treated for wounds suffered in past attacks.

The attack highlights the importance of sealing our borders to stop the unrelenting threat against Mexican police in a city where two major drug cartels are battling for control of routes into the USA for shipments of drugs and illegal immigrants.

Just two weeks ago, two Mexican state police officials were shot to death in their unmarked vehicle.

Previously, Elizondo’s colleagues were wounded when gunmen burst into a restaurant where the officers were eating.

More than 110 people have been slain in Nuevo Laredo this year in a killing spree authorities believe could surpass last year’s record of 176.

Earlier in the month, Elizondo, 31, said officers in his department were warned by superiors that drug cartel members had issued a threat against city police. Last summer, Nuevo Laredo’s police chief was assassinated just hours after taking office.

The article reports that friends and family have been telling him to leave the police force, but he refused.

The 21st Century Paul Revere Ride of 2006

Cross posted from Committee of Correspondence

One if by land, two if by sea, and I on the opposite shore shall be updated to the 21at Century.

The 21st Century Paul Revere Ride of 2006 is a summer-long cross-country motorcycle ride that will visit all state capitols to inform the public and their elected public servants of the severity of the illegal immigration crisis. The ride will began in Denver and will terminate in Washington, DC.

The ride is underway! Riders left Denver on May 29, 2006, after a successful rally. See photos of the team, their motorcycles and the rally.

“The 21st Century Paul Revere Ride has my whole-hearted support because it embodies the spirit of patriotism that brought America its independence in 1776. America’s sovereignty is threatened in 2006 not by British redcoats but by the elimination of our borders. It remains true today as in the past: vigilant citizens are our first line of defense. I applaud and salute the 21st Century Paul Revere Ride because its message needs to be heard all across the county, but especially it needs to be heard at the final destination of the ride, our nation’s capital. I wish I could join these patriots on their 48-state ride — it would be more fun than my normal duties – but my prayers and best wishes go with them, for their safety and for their success.”

– Rep. Tom Tancredo

Iran’s military plans for invasion by U.S.

From The Washington Times:

Iran, apparently anticipating an American invasion, has quietly been restructuring its military and testing a new military doctrine that calls for a decentralized, Iraqi-style guerrilla campaign against an invading force.

Iran’s military planners are acutely aware that a military confrontation with technologically more advanced U.S. armed forces would be rapid and multifronted, unlike the static and slow-paced 1980-88 war with Saddam Hussein’s Iraq.

Therefore, a series of war games have been carried out since late last year to test the army’s readiness.

In December, more than 15,000 members of the regular armed forces participated in an exercise in northwestern Iran’s strategically sensitive Azerbaijan border provinces that focused on irregular warfare carried out by highly mobile army units, according to the official MENA news agency.

A second exercise was conducted in the majority-Arab province of Khuzestan in September, according to the Iranian press, aimed at quelling insurgencies in areas subject to ethnic unrest and prone to foreign influence.

Involving a reported 100,000 troops, the exercise provided an example of how the Islamic Republic would respond to further disturbances in the strategic, oil-rich province that has been the scene of a year-old terrorist bombing campaign.

What a bunch of idiots, we have no intention of invading Iran. We will of course bomb their sorry behinds if they don’t get control of themselves.

Iraq War Vet is suing Michael Moore for $85 million

Go get him!

From The NY Post:

A double-amputee Iraq-war vet is suing Michael Moore for $85 million, claiming the portly peacenik recycled an old interview and used it out of context to make him appear anti-war in “Fahrenheit 9/11.”

Sgt. Peter Damon, 33, who strongly supports America’s invasion of Iraq, said he never agreed to be in the 2004 movie, which trashes President Bush.

In the 2003 interview, which he did at Walter Reed Army Hospital for NBC News, he discussed only a new painkiller the military was using on wounded vets.

“They took the clip because it was a gut-wrenching scene,” Damon said yesterday. “They sandwiched it in. [Moore] was using me as ammunition.”

Damon seems to “voice complaint about the war effort” in the movie, according to the lawsuit.

But what the father of two from Middleborough, Mass., was really talking about was the “excruciating” pain he felt after he lost his arms when a Black Hawk helicopter exploded in front of him.

Damon wasn’t expressing any opinion about the war, the suit charges, but rather extolling the drug.

“I just want everybody to know what kind of a guy Michael Moore is, and what kind of film this is,” said Damon. He has appeared in two films attacking “Fahrenheit” -“Michael Moore Hates America” and “Fahrenhype 9/11.”

In “Fahrenheit 9/11,” the bandaged National Guardsman is shown laying on a gurney complaining that he feels like he’s “being crushed in a vise. But they [the drugs] do a lot to help it and they take a lot of the edge off it.”

His image appears seconds after Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) says, “You know, they say they’re not leaving any veterans behind, but they’re leaving all kinds of veterans behind.”

Damon – the dad of a 8-year-old girl and 4-year-old boy – doesn’t come close to feeling that way.

“He couldn’t have picked the worst guy to say that about,” he told The Post.

“I’m the most fortunate disabled guy. I’ve even had a house built for me [by a nonprofit group, Home for Our Troops].”

Particularly outrageous to Damon is the fact that Moore never interviewed him or asked his permission to use the old clip.

“I was complaining about the pain I would’ve been having [if it weren’t for the painkiller],” he said.

NBC is named in the suit – which was filed in Suffolk County, Mass., on Friday – along with Harvey and Robert Weinstein, Miramax Corp., Lions Gate Films and other production companies involved with the picture.

Newsman Brian Williams ends the NBC clip by adding, “These men, with catastrophic wounds are . . . completely behind the war effort,” according to the lawsuit.

That part, which wasn’t shown in the Moore movie, is a far more accurate depiction of Damon’s feelings, he said.

Lawyer Dennis Lynch said he took the case last year and they held off filing the lawsuit in a bid to settle the matter.

“We attempted to resolve the situation amicably with Mr. Moore [for a year] but he refused,” he said.

Damon is asking for up to $75 million because of “loss of reputation, emotional distress, embarrassment, and personal humiliation.”

In addition, his wife is suing for another $10 million because of the “mental distress and anguish suffered by her spouse.”

One can only hope Michael Moore gets everything that is coming to his communist propagandist ass!

Appeal rejected in Mt. Pleasant case to bar Boy Scout recruiters

Just some good news…

From The Detroit Free Press:

The U.S. Supreme Court rejected an appeal Tuesday from a man who is an atheist over Boy Scout recruiting at his son’s public school in Mt. Pleasant.

John Scalise, a former city commissioner, had asked the court to bar public schools from opening their doors to Boy Scout recruiters and promoting membership.

He argued that the group discriminates against nonreligious boys and parents by denying them membership if they don’t swear to religious oaths.

Scalise’s dispute with the Scouts dates to 1998, when his son was a third-grader at Fancher Elementary. He claims he and his son were barred from a Scout program at the school because they would not pledge “to do my duty to God and my country.”

The Scalises are nonreligious Humanists.

Michigan courts ruled that the school-Scout partnership did not advance religion in violation of constitutional dictates.

Attorneys for the Scouts and the Mt. Pleasant school system told justices that the appeal was frivolous.

A Michigan appeals court said that Mt. Pleasant schools allowed other organizations to use class facilities, among them a hospital group, an American Indian tribe, a Baptist church and a hockey association.

Scalise argued that his son, Benjamin, was taunted by classmates and humiliated by a Boy Scout recruiter in front of other students. Benjamin Scalise is now 17.

They are non religious humanists, they mean Secular Humanists, or communists in my vernacular. I am sick and tired of people being offended by God, his name, or anyone’s belief in God. The Boy scouts have a set of requirements and if you cannot meet those requirements you cannot be a scout, plain and simple.

Awe, but he was excluded…well, I wasn’t able to be a scout either because we didn’t have the money and my parents didn’t have the time. I survived just fine without being a scout, and so will the now 17 year old boy who wasted allot of taxpayer dollars on this frivolous nonsense.

Coalition Against Illegal Immigration Business

Sorry, I have not been blogging, but I have been on the phone all Day with the House of Representative’s leadership. You will be happy to know it looks like they are holding strong against any path to citizenship for those here illegally, or temporary workers.

We discussed in depth what my opinions were on the subject and they were received well. I learned a bit about their problems with enfocement now, although I gave them a solution for that as well. hehe

After very lengthy conversations, I feel better about our chances of saving our country. Plan on losing the felony provision, because the Republicans don’t want it and tried to get rid of it previously but was blocked by the Democrats. Why you ask? Because it is a poison pill that the Dems want in it. The felony provision would cause illegal Aliens to be tied up in the legal system and they want a fast track to deportation.

I made it crystal clear that no path to citizenship would be acceptable, and I was informed that is the message they are hearing, and there won’t be any path to citizenship. I informed them that “we the people” are paying attention and we will remember in November!

A Marine Family in Need! Please Help!

A Marine family is stationed in Twenty-Nine Palms, CA. They have one son who is 11 years old and one daughter who is 7 years old. They are in desperate need of our prayers, gifts, cards of encouragement, donations, or just more support from the Milblogosphere! Their son was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The reason that donations of money or maybe clothes is important is because for the past three weeks the Dad, our Marine in Need, has been paying for everything out of his own pocket. It just so happens that the government doesn’t move as fast as a family, or the situation, may require – if you’ve served or are serving now, you know this to be true. And, you may also know that all our brave men and women don’t get paid very much, so this hardship is even more acute.

Please take a moment and read the family’s story and learn how you can help…
